Passing On The Thing

OK - so the other day I got given a thing by The Watercats and I muchly greatful for said thing - i've always wanted a thing and you can rest assured that it will be put on display in a suitable location.

I think when I accept the thing I'm supposed to tell you seven random things about myself and pass said thing onto someone else - not sure I can entirely manage this but, will do my best:

1) I was a member of the Junior Magic Circle and used to be an annoying precocious kid performing tricks at strangers (I left shortly after realising Senior Magic Circle was little more than an old man's drinking club)

2) I'd like to see "Musical Chairs", "Pass The Parcel" and "What's The Time Mr Wolf" on the list for the 2012 Olympic Games

3) I was once surprised to bump into (he's a quiz show host/comedian) Les Dennis whilst waiting outside a local theatre

4) I once cycled 300 miles across China (more of which later this month to mark the anniversary)

5) I'm rubbish at finishing the novels i start to write

6) I really, really didn't enjoy "Fight Club" and thought the end of "Se7en" was just daft (controvertial, i know)

7) My next Poetry Bus challenge will be announced this Friday to save me posting Poetry Bus twice arond my Wordzzle

OK - so the only people I can think to pass this onto who haven't already had it are:

I am confused and intrigued.

The Bug said...

Well, except for your controversial movie reviews & the China trip you succeeded in not telling us very much. Good job!

I humbly accept the award. However because I really like to reveal all on my blog I'm not sure I can come up with 7 NEW things. That's not true - I'm simply fascinating so there is always new stuff to talk about. Thanks for giving me the chance LOL!

P.S. My word verif. is sluckast. I think I'm offended.

Ooh, ooh, no. 2 is the best idea I've heard for ages!
Do we sign a petition or what?

the watercats said...

the china thing sounds so cool!.. you lucky bleedah!

Don't Feed The Pixies said...

Jessica - aren't we all

Bug - i look forward to the result

Titus - i think it would be great to have Olympic Standard Musical Chairs. We could play the national anthems of each competing country in turn and when they stop playing you have to sit down :)

Watercats - i've been meaning to publish my journal of the trip for ages...

Rachel Fox said...

China trip - wow! And your Olympics suggestions...but 'Fight club'! I loved it. You must be mad.

Plus you're not going to post your prompt till friday! Some of us need more time, more time... Please. I only really get writing time during the week.
